The biggest story out of this weekend’s Tea Party protests, unfortunately for its organizers, seems to be the Duval County, Florida Republican Party’s endorsement of an event that featured an unusual number of “Obama = Hitler” signs. Jax Politics has photos which have been stripped from Facebook.

More, from Austin:

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn drew boos from a crowd outside the Texas Capitol this afternoon as he spoke at a “tea party” rally organized by the Texas office of Americans for Prosperity. Cornyn was booed at the start and close of his remarks, which assailed actions in Washington… “You’re the problem,” a crowd member hollered. Another crowd member yelled that Cornyn voted for the initial federal bailout of Wall Street approved by Congress last year, the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

From Dallas, where organizers speculated that turnout might hit 50,000 or more:

The withering heat kept away early crowds, but as many as 35,000 eventually showed for the speeches, music and night-time fireworks, organizers said. … Parker police did not return calls seeking verification of attendance numbers.
